More affordable homes could be built within 'round' tower blocks planned next to Camden’s Roundhouse music venue.

Developer Regal London first submitted proposals to Camden Council for the former One Housing HQ office site in Chalk Farm Road in February.

The buildings were designed by architects DSDHA and will range between six and 12 storeys in height, if they receive planning permission.

Initial plans suggested that three of the four blocks, which would stand next to the Roundhouse, would contain 265 student flats.

It was suggested at the time that the other ten-storey tower would provide 24 affordable homes.

But the site’s developer has now said that after the initial council consultation, it has proposed to increase this number to 30 homes.

This would partially be achieved by extending the building out to the site’s boundary.

The new mix of flats proposed now includes some four-bedroom homes, as well as three, two and one-bedroom homes.

Other changes include changing the layout of student rooms in the two larger blocks to improve their views and privacy.

The design of the outside of the buildings has also been amended, including a proposal to install a textured terracotta panel above each window.

If the scheme gets the green light, the existing buildings on the site would need to be demolished before work on the new blocks can begin.

The plans can be seen in full on Camden Council’s planning portal, under reference (2024/0479/P).

Comments on the revised application can be made until June 30. No due date for a decision has been set.
